REV'IT! Airwave Pants The perfect match for the REV'IT! Airwave jacket, these trousers are also great over-pants to wear on top of your jeans during summer commutes. The large air mesh panels allow for maximum cooling, but that's not all they're on and off in seconds, thanks to the long inside zippers. Reflective panels at the lower legs ensure great visibility at all times. Even more, the Knox Flexiform CE-approved armor is located in height adjustable pockets, allowing you to position the armour just the way you like it. Available in classic black or fresh silver. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell polyester 600D , PWRshell 500D stretch, PWRshell mesh, polyester rib Visibility laminated reflection at calf Protection Knox Flexiform CE protection at knees , prepared for TRYONIC Seesoft CE-level 1 type B hip protector insert - version RV01 ( sold separately ) ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit , regular Adjustability adjustment straps at waist, adjustment tab at ankles Ventilation ventilation panels at legs Features easy entrance zipper at calf, adjustable protector pockets, short connection zipper, elastic at waistband Pockets slit pockets

These pants are way too baggy. I only wish that Rev'It would go back to a more European Fit. Too baggy in the A** and the legs. They reminded me of those rap pants of the 80's. The crotch rides up too much as well. The Ignition pants are much more form fitting that these. You would think all Rev'It pants would fit much more universal. I was hoping these pants would have the same/similar fit as the Ignition 2. No such luck! I wish they offered a more slender fit in a longer length. Rev'It please make up your mind if you want to be a European cut or an American cut. Your gear is getting more boxy by the year! I suggest you go back to the CAD machine and give us a much better fit/product! If you're a slender/athletic fit. Your out of luck with these.

REV'IT! Ignition 2 Jacket How can you improve on a jacket that's already considered one of the most multi-functional, 3-season, leather mesh styles You dig deeper and make it even better.

This is a very stylish and protective Jacket. The problem is the Dynex mesh. When it get's hot it doesn't flow enough air. When it get's cold (under 50 degrees) good luck (even with the liner/little vest in)! The liner stinks. For $500 they should put a Gore-Tex liner in! It gets too hot and clammy in there so called breathable liner. The Thermal Vest is another story. Why even bother? For the price point it should be a full Thermal Liner that is super warm to help block the impending wind chill in the cold. A word to the wise on sizing. Do not try this Jacket on with all the layers in it. Remove them. Believe me, you're not going to really use them much of the year any way. If you buy it from the size chart, it's not going to have that snug fit. IMO. But, I have a tall, slender, athletic, Euro build. The Jacket is way over priced, and it needs to vent more in the hot weather. It's funny saying that, because half of the Jacket is mesh. lol.
Good Points: Leather in the impact zones. Armor. Quality.
Bad Points: Liner. Too much Dynex mesh (needs more venting in hot/humid weather). Adjustment on the collar. Price (bang for the buck). Vest Thermal (it should be a full ultra warm thermal at that price point).
I can only recommend this Jacket if you live in a Climate that is a consistent 65-80 degrees. This is not a Jack of All trades Jacket. If you can afford multiple Jackets than 2 thumbs up. If this is you're only/main Jacket you may be a little disappointed.
